Yamaha drops prices for 2012

Popular models like Raider, Road Star, V-Star 950, R1, R6, YZ125 see BIG decreases! (For immediate release) - Yamaha Motor Canada has announced sizeable price reductions to most of their 2012 motorcycles, including models like the Raider, V-Star 950 and R1! This is great news for Canadian customers as suggested retail pricing gets more in line with those offered in the United States. “Due to market fluctuations and inventory levels, we weren’t able to address the pricing gaps of the last few years as quickly as we would have liked”, commented Peter Swanton, National Sales Manager, Motorsports for Yamaha Canada. “But to kick off 2012, we’re well positioned to bring about this price reduction. Yamaha customers can now get many models for the same price they would have paid 7 or 8 years ago, even with the product technological advances that have happened in the meantime.” While some prices remain unchanged, many key models, including those listed below, have seen significant reductions:
